A most deplorable accident, if acci
dent it can properly be called, hap
pened in the lower part of town last
Sunday evening, at 5:30, by which a
little son of Jos. Baarlost his life. We
made diligent inquiries and we give
the facts as near as we were able to
gather them. In the first place, in
order to get a thorough understanding
of the case, we would state that Mr.
Baar, the father of the victim, is a day
laborer, living in Baumler's old build
ing, not far from the Eagle Mill. The
little fellow, who would have been 4
years old next November, was left in
charge of an older biother while their
mother went out to assists Mr. Baum
ler in hauling hay. When Mr. Baum
ler was returning with a load of hay,
on which were seated Mrs. Baar and
Mrs. Gcede, the boy ran out to meet
them expecting, no doubt, to get aride
the older one at the same time calling
on Fritz Beinhorn, a 14 year old son of
Fr. Beinhorn, and two other boys, that
were passing down 3d North'street, to
wards the river .to drive him back. The
three boys told the little fellow to go
home, one of them at the same time
tramping on the street in order to scare
him. At this juncture it appears young
Beinhorn, who was within 3 or 4 yards
of the lad, pointed a small pistol to
ward him and said: '*Go home" and at
the same time fired. The ball entered
the little boy's forehead about one and
a quarter inches over the left eye,
passed through the brain and lodged in
the back part of the head. The anguish
of the mother, who had been an eye
witness to the whole proceeding, upon
seeing her darling boy fall pierced by
a bullet, may better be imagined than
expressed. The little fellow was ten
derly carried into the house, and Dr.
Muller was hastily summoned, who
upon his arrival,pronounced the wound
fatal. He lingered however in a state
of unconsciousness until 8 o'clock Mon
day evening, when he quietly passed
away, never having once spoken from
the time of the fatal shot. He will be
carried to his last resting place this
afternoon at 2 o'clock. The coroner
held an inquest over the body yester
day at 10 a. m. and examined witnes
ses, but the evidence adduced elicited
no other facts than we have above
given. The following is the verdict
of the coroners juiy:
An inqnis iijn taken at the lionse oi Joseph Baar
in the city ot Se-n Ulm, IU the county of Bi ov, n, on
Ihe fath day of August, A D. 1878, befoie H.
Chrixtensen, coroner of the siud county of Biown,
upon view of the body ot George Banr. lying theie
dead, by the oaths of the jurors whose mimes aie

fcehalf of the State of Minnesota, when, how, and by
what means the said Geo Baarcamo to his death,
upon their oaths do say, Ave iind that the said Geo.
B.iai came to his death, August 5th, 187S, horn the
affects of a bullet fired from a pistol in the hands of
Fred Beinhmn ji on August 4th, 1878 near Ice
Hoube belonging to Petei Heirian, that said Bein
horn fired the pistol to simply scare said Baar and
not with any intention of killing him, [said George
Ba ir.]
In testimony wheieof, the snid coroner and jur
ors of the inquest have hereunto set their hands the
day and year aforesaid.

While the shooting no doubt was ac
cidental, as young Beinhorn merely
intended to scare him, the point
ing of the revolver at the boy is
a piece of carelessness too often in
idulged in by even older people, and
this sad accident should be a dire warn
ing to eyeryone handling fire arms to
he more careful. Especially should It
be a warning to parents to be more
stringent with their boys and not allow
them to handle deadly weapons of any
kind. The family of Mr. Baar has the
sympathy of the community in this
their very sad affliction as also the
family of Mr. Beinhorn who, naturally
feel greatly embarrassed under ther ciri'
passes without we are called upon to
chronicle a runaway. The most seri
ous, however, that has occurred in this
vicinity for along time, happened last
Sunday evening. Mr. Amon Peterson,
brother of S. D. Peterson, and lady
were out taking a ride, nnd when near
Wjnkjemann's pottery one of the horses
got the Jines nnder his tail whereupon
tie commenced to kick, causing one of
the outside traces to become detached.
The horses then commenced to run in
a circle, upsetting the buggy and
throwing both occupants violently to
the ground. Mrs. Peterson had two
ribs broken, a shoulder dislocated .and
received other injuries about the head.
Mr. Peterson escaped more luckily, as
Jne only received some slight bruises
about ttie knees. Dr. Muller has the
patiente in charge and they are doing
as well as could be expected, The
laorses, alter running a short distance

T%e cryrf "fine," that word which

NEW TIME CARDA new time card
has been issued by the Winona & St.
Peter railroad and went into efEect last
Sunday, at 9 a. m. While the new ar
rangement does not effect New Ulm,
as far as the eastern end is concerned,
the trains, both passenger and
freight, arrive and depart as hereto
fore, it materially effects the people
west of us. The passenger train has
been discontinued and the only com
munication we now have with the west
is by a mixed train, which leaves here
at 9:20 a. m., and arrives at Marshall
at 5:10, and Gary 9:40 p. m. We doand
not think that the people west of us
will appreciate this new arrangement
muchly," as* under it they will re
ceive mail from the east only every
other day, saying nothing of being all
day going to, or returning from, Mar
shall. A freight train also leaves New
Ulm for the west at 8 a. m., but it goes
only as far as Sleepy Eye. The trains
for Redwood Falls leave Sleepy Eye at
10:30 a. m. and arrive at Redwood at
12-30 p. m. Going east the trains leave
Redwood at 1:00 p. m. and arrive in
Sleepy Eye at 3:00 p. m., in time for
the passengers to take the accommoda
tion train tor this city where it makes
close connection with the night express
for the east.
The Mankato Beobachter says that
they have no use for rifle companies in
that city to.keep down the tramps, as
they have a more simple way of dispos
ing of themthey hang the rascals "if"
they catch 'em. Yes, brother B.,
that's a very simple way of solving the
tramp problem, but your catching
agency has not been very successful so
far in catching the chaps.
Mr. C. F. Held proprietor and manu
facturer of the "Farmer's Friend Fan
ning Mill" has lately so improved and
remodeled his mills that they are now
equal to thej best. We weie shown
some samples of wheat last Monday
which had been cleaned by one of those
mills that was all that could be wished
for. Mr. Held offers the "Farmer's
Fiiend" for $25,00, and such of ourto
farmers as are in need of a fanning mill
should examine these mills before plac
ing their orders elsewiiere. Encourage
home industry, especially when you
can obtain the same quality of goods
for the same money. Mr. Held war
lants his mills to do all that is claimed
for them, jt
We learn from the Windom Reporter
that John Cooney, a likely young lad of
M't. Lake, who attended two terms of
the Sister's school in this city, met
with what may prove a fatal accident.
The boy was herding cattle and had
taken a seat on a trestle bridge of the
St. Paul & Sionx City railroad, where,
overcome with heat, he fell asleep,
with his head on the rail and feet hang
ing below. The engineer of theMr.
Woithington accommodation train dis
covered him when within about fifty
feet, but not in time to stop the train.
The cowcatcher struck the boy's head
knocking him from the trestle to the
ground, some fifteen feet, Upon be
ing picked up it was found that the
back pait of the skull was crushed,
and when the fractured pieces were re
moved the brain was laid bare to
extent of the size of a silver dollar. At
latest accounts the boy was still alive,
and everything possible is being done
for him.
N EW STORENagle &Co. have open
ed a new hardware and tinware store
in Lohmann's building, on 3d North
street. Thefirmis composed of Henrythe
Nagle and Lafayette McClahan, both
enterpiising and energetic young men,
and we bespeak for them a bright fu
ture. Their stock is all new and of
the best quality, and as they come with
the intention of establishing a perma
nent business their prices will be found
to correspond favorably with others
handling the same class of goods. Give
them a call, and see for yourselves.
Our friend Tory Olesen returned
from Delavan Station last Saturday
evening. During liis absence he be
came a hard-working granger, and re
turns so much tanned and sunburned
that, it is said, his sweetheart didn't
recognize him when he called to pay
his respects, and at first took him for
a tramp. It is ever thus, the hard* til

dues. But Tory will live through it

The Lake City Leader disposes of the
tramp problem in this wise:
"AJJ that big scare that we heard from
below about the army of harvest hands
that was soon to spread ruin through
out our State has dwindled into a
"mare's nest," as it were.t The har
vesters have come, and as* a iple they
are a well-behaved set of men, with
sunburned brow and callous hands
ready and willing to work for the
wealth they sought to possess. They
came on boat and train, took up their
quarters on the business thoroughfares,
and hired out by the hundred, taking,
their departure without unseemly de
monstrations of any kind." Tramps and
harvest hands should not be confound
ed, and it is easy to distinguish one
fioin the other/'"*-

The most destructive hail storm on
record, accompanied by heavy wind
and rain, passed over portions of Car
ver, Scott, Rice and Dakota counties,
Tuesday afternoon, July 30th. A spe
cial correspondent of thePioneer Press,
writing from Carver, says that hail
stones four and five inches in diameter
fell, covering the ground to a depth of
tluee or four inches,cutting coin down
the ground and completely burying
wheat, oats and other giam in the
ground. Tiees were stripped of leaves
and torn down. On the Wednesday
following another hail stoim passed
thioughpoitions of Nicollet and Sibley
counties doing considerable damage to
standing crops and scattering grain in
shocks in all directions. Fences wrere
blown down and demolished. Hail
stones could be found on the ground 12
hours after the storm had passed.
The Eagle Mill received thefirstnew
wheat last Saturday. The wheat was
from the farms of John Franta in
West Newton, and Fr. Krueger of
Courtland, and went 52 and 53 pounds
to the| bushel, was graded No. 3, "and
brought 60 cts. We are informed by
Doehne, of the Eagle Mill, that the
wheat will make good flour, and the
only trouble was that it lacked in
weight. From the specimens shown

We understand that several cases
of petty thievery have been commit
ted of late, by some young scamps
of this city. A thirteen year old
boy, living in the northern part of
the town, entered a neighbor's house
one day last week and took there
from a pocket book containing $12.
After securing the money he threw
pocket book into the neighbor
ing garden, and then repaired to a
store where pistols are kept for sale
and bought himself a revolver and
two boxes of cartridges. After toy
ing with the pistol for a day or so he
traded it off for a few marbles. Our
